The Q&A Archives: Lawn: timing of applications/seed

Question: I live in Chicago.Would like to apply seed,grub control, and fertilizer this spring.What is the timing, and how spread out should these be? Thx, Nick

Answer: You can overseed and fertilize in April. I'd feed first, wait two weeks and then overseed. Grub control should be applied in summer when the grubs are closest to the surface and most vulnerable to the insecticide. July is normally the target date for grub control in your region. Good luck with your lawn!
